No cows milk before 12 months. Formula is what is needed if you cannot pump enough to store.

You can start baby formula. Only baby formula or breastmilk should be fed to a baby for the first 12 months. You will probably want to introduce the baby formula to your 4 month old before going back to work to make sure baby takes the bottle and takes the formula.
